The summer is continuing with full steam, and we have an appropriately uplifting mixtape to share with you, courtesy of rising star Naughty Boy.

The Watford boy has an interesting story - having first received £5000 from the Prince's Trust, then winning £44,000 on Deal or No Deal to finance a studio, he has used it wisely, quickly becoming a natural successor to Labrinth in terms of production and songwriting skills.

Now launching a career in his own right, his debut record Hotel Cabana is released this week, featuring the cream of British talent, including Bastille, Tinie Tempah, Professor Green, Wretch 32, Ella Eyre and Sam Smith, with whom he has already scored a huge No.1 with the infectious La La La.

Here's an exclusive mix he's put together for ShortList, featuring 10 tracks including Le Youth, Kendrick Lamar, AlunaGeorge and, of course, a couple of his own tunes. Well, you would wouldn't you?

Hotel Cabana is out now, available from iTunes (standard & deluxe) and Amazon
